A lonely Viridian Lord
« on: April 06, 2012, 07:16:52 PM »
I painted this guy to be part of a warband for a Lead Painter's League a while back, but I never got the rest of the group finished.  I left most of his veins looking human-like as I had the idea that he was a cursed human rather than an undead reanimated plant-body thing.

I still feel like it's a bit unfinished, but I think I'm calling him done for now.

Let me know what you all think!

Love the look of the V Lord with the scenery.

For Chronopia, I don't have much planned.  There's a half-done Necromancer conversion that I need to finish painting, but right now my painting table has some of my own Forge of Ice miniatures and a bunch of Wargods stuff, as well as a few D&D miniatures and some Conan The Barbarian themed figures.

I'm in the middle of a huge "sort and sell" project right now, that's how I rediscovered the Viridian Lord!

I'm painting up my mummies and the Pterro-Man, as well as a converted Pterro-Man, and a little turtle.

A Gubser Conan?

I think I tried to buy that one, but you sniped it first!  *shakes his fist at Andy* 

:P

Yeah, Matt's a great sculptor... I'll get him to do something for me eventually. 

His comedy is pretty good, too - seriously, check out his youtube videos.  That guy tells some hilarious stories!

Oh....I thought this was a "singles' ad," at first...;D
If sing, sang, and sung, sink, sank, and sunk, and drink, drank, and drunk, how is it that it isn't bring, brang, and brung, think, thank and thunk, and ding, dang, and dung?

Don't even get me started about bad, badder and baddest.  Run, ran AND run...again?  C'mon!
